Surveillance of ticks on animals

The Alberta government monitors the types of ticks that attach to animals and humans, and those found in the environment.

Notice to veterinarians

The Alberta Companion Animal Tick Surveillance Program has transitioned to Alberta Health Services’ Alberta Precision Laboratories as part of the Submit-a-tick program. If you find a tick on a pet, a person or anywhere outside, see Lyme disease and tick surveillance.
